City Council Panel Recommends 300-Foot Buffer for Food Trucks

City Council Panel Recommends 300-Foot Buffer for Food Trucks

 

Members of the Las Vegas City Council’s Recommending Committee backed an ordinance to create a 300-foot buffer zone between restaurants and food trucks.

Restaurant owners had wanted an 800 foot separation, but it was rejected by the recommending committee. Councilman Stavros Anthony introduced the 300-foot buffer, which was approved by a 2-to-1 vote.

The committee will make the recommendation to the full city council at the meeting set for August 15. The council could approve, amend or deny the recommendation.

First Bites – CHOCOLATE & SPICE

The new venture from former Aureole pastry chef Megan Romano gets a rave review from John Curtas.

Chef Recreates First-Class Meal from the Titanic

Chef Recreates First-Class Meal from the Titanic

This weekend marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic.

To commemorate the anniversary and to honor those lost in the disaster, Bar+Bistro is recreating a grand meal inspired by the menu from a private dinner for first-class passengers served just hours before the ship hit an iceberg and started to sink. Chef Beni Velazquez is giving the historic menu a modern spin.

“This is 100 years ago. The techniques are techniques. So, I was going to give it my own little version and decided just do the entire menu,” Velazquez said.

Velazquez discovered the 10-course meal while doing research for the anniversary. His downtown restaurant will serve it this weekend.

“I want people to get that experience of what it might have been like. What were those courses like? How were they presented?” the chef said.

The tasting menu is $88 per person:
